KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 1 -Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today advised all Barisan Nasional (BN) component party leaders not to publicly discuss differences, problems or engage in polemics on issues like Malay supremacy.
Actually, when we formed the BN structure, one of the aims was for any differences or problems or polemics to be discussed behind closed doors through special channels the coalition has made available.
But of late, these channels are not being utilised. Some quarters are more interested in discussing things openly,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said when asked to comment about component parties of the BN openly raising issues concerning Malay supremacy.
He said this to reporters after chairing a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Sports Development at Parliament today.
Najib said openly discussing such matters did not bring any benefit to the BN.
It is counter-productive as the people will view the BN as having so many problems all the time.
I do not deny the component parties have the right to voice out their grievances but it must be done properly.
It can also lead to other component parties that are not involved to feel uneasy,Ã¢â‚¬Â he added.
